Obituary for James H. Congdon

In Loving Memory
James H. "Jim" Congdon
January 5, 2021

On January 5, 2021, James H. "Jim" Congdon passed away peacefully with his family by his bedside.
Jim was born August 2, 1940 in Syracuse.

Jim was predeceased by his mother Doris and father Charles, as did his 2 sisters, Carol and Fredora, brother Charles (survived by Virginia) and daughter Cynthia Britton (survived by Paul).

Jim was survived by his wife of 49 years Patricia Babcock Congdon, Children James Congdon (Laurie), Dennis Congdon (Brenda), Kelly Congdon Pugh (Patrick), Nicole Congdon, Valerie Natal (Marco), Elvis Congdon (Shannon), and Shirley Randall (Nicholas). He was also Grandpa or "Bumpa" to Zack, Alex, Tia (Christopher), Justin (Sam), Blake, Chelsea, Alysha, Riley, Sophia, Willow, Isabella and Jared. Three great grandkids, Livvy, Chaeli and Jon. And many nieces and nephews that called him Uncle or "Worm". And many, many people called him Friend!

Jim lived most of his life in Mexico where he served in the US Army, foster parented many children, worked for the Cornell Cooperative Extension along with Harter Funeral Home, Inc. He was an avid volunteer for Operation Reindeer, and of course Santa Clause. He was a lifelong camper at Cold Brook Campsites, where he made a close circle of friends.

Just about everyone in Mexico knew Jim and he always had a smile on his face and whistling a tune. If you asked how he was it was always "Fantastic". Everyone that knew him, loved him. He truly was one of the Good Ones!

Friends and family are invited to call from 3 to 5 p.m. Monday, January 11, 2021 at the Harter Funeral Home, Inc. 9 Washington Avenue, Mexico NY. A private funeral service will be celebrated for the family due, to current COVID restrictions.

In lieu of flowers, Jim has asked that there be donations made in his name to Operation Reindeer, PO Box 631
Mexico, NY 13114.
